  1. Hi,

    In this video we can read 9099 or more precise 909900

    When you explain that first 3 digits are direction, 90 is 90° direction.

    And 99 for 99 hectometers ?


    Thanks in advance for your explanation, Skull.


    That is not a data input, it is a command (to load data from the cartridge).

    Since there is no alphanumeric keyboard, different commands have different numeric codes. I assume that the commands have a number series that can never be mistaken for coordinates etc.

  2. Hello@all, already post this in German Thread, but perhaps thers a greater chance to find someone with the same problem here, or s.o. Have a solution.


    Until now i was able to realize all Functions of my Huey Pit using only the arcaze board.


    Now i stuck at the wiper Rotary Switch. Because DCS got no switch-positions like at the AC or DC Power panel. Just "faster" and "slower&park".


    How i can bring this to work with a 5-Position rotary-switch (NO encoder!)


    Thank you for your help!





    There are three different ways of solving this as I see it.


    * some lua-scritpting (a little way above my knowledge but probably possible). Look at how other has solved it for flaps switches with multiple positions (I'm pretty sure I have seen something like this).


    * get a rotary switch that is (on) - off - (on) - i.e. automatically centered when not operated. Doesn't really solve the problem, but some kind of compromise pretty close.


    * have a multiposition rotary switch interfaced by an Arduino that translated the changed position to either an increas or decrease command to DCS.

  3. The Amiga version of Fighter Bomber has the following planes:



    F-111 F

    F-15 Eagle

    Tornado (Germany)

    F4 Phantom

    AJ 37 Viggen

    Tornado (UK)

    Mig-27 Flogger



    F-14 Tomcat

    F-16 Falcon

    F-5E Tiger II

    Mig-29 Fulcrum

    Su-27 Flanker

    Mirage 2000

    Mig-31 Foxhound


    Can't remember right now if the expansionpack was just about new missions or if it also included extra aircrafts.

  4. Not really a Viggen video, but this is a must see to get a nice feel for the low flying boys of the time...




    This is truly awesome. My uncle was an A32 Lansen pilot and he has some great stories to tell :)

    He is also looking forward to try the DCS Viggen module and see how much better the Viggen is.

  5. I have not bought the Viggen yet. That's why I can not promise much. If we get the necessary data, then it would be possible.


    I would be happy to assist with this, as I did with the beta testing. Viggen pre-ordered so I will start flying day one :)

    But with the manual available I assume that someone could start with the graphics and design instruments and so on since it has some good screenshots and explanations.

  6. Well, the Warhog solution will most definitely cover all possible scenarios when it comes to power requirements :)

    Personally I use ULN2803 circuits that is good enough for driving a couple of led's or light bulbs for indicators for my panels. They are simple to use and doesn't require any additional components.

  7. He's referring to the family of 9mm practice weapons for the Swedish recoilless rifles (granatgevär m/48 and m/86 as well as pansarskott m/68 and m/86). On the grg (Carl Gustav, in international parlance) this is a dinky little single shot 9mm pistol-like gun mounted inside what is essentially an inert round for the real thing. On the single-use launchers (Miniman and AT4) the practice weapon is mounted fixed in the main weapon's tube since, well, single use. When you fire the weapon as normal the 9mm practice weapon goes off with a rather anticlimactic "plop" (the muzzle velocity is subsonic) and you get a tracer round that has ballistics similar to the real thing out to maybe 150 meters. While it's a lot less dangerous than a real 84mm HE or HEAT round, it's effectively still a pistol round and normal range safety rules apply.


    It's mainly intended for practicing the handling (and in case of the grg, reloading) of the weapon over and over again until it's reflex. For actual aiming practice there's also a 20mm variant which is actually recoilless and matches the ballistics of the real thing a lot closer throughout the normal firing envelope. Both of these also have the advantage of not making a gigantic overpressure blast, which is good for work safety reasons (there are medical limitations on how many of these you're permitted per day in peacetime).


    e: beaten again, I type too slow


    For the practice weapons there is a possibility to add an extra charge (signaturladdning) that simulates the back blast with some more "boom". Both for the 9 and 20 mm and for the blinds, which add some realism when you use the Simfire laser equipment =)


    Shooting with the 9 mm (actually this is pretty similar to a standard pistol round) was really dissapointing. The 20 mm is however a little more fun. But shooting a full 8.4 cm round makes the world spin for a short moment :thumbup:




    Note the blue ring at the AT4

  8. With modern graphics cards one has monitor interfaces coming out of once ears, so one could just get a small monitor for the scope and one for the radar !


    Yeah, I have plans for a gutted old VHS camcorder for this purpose :) That little CRT seeker display and some magnifier or freznel will be great.
